Ep. 366: Are We Still Supposed To Be In Survival Mode? Plus, What Fresh Hell with Margaret Ables

EBiz is joined by podcaster and writer Margaret Ables to talk about survival mode. Are we surviving? Yes. Maybe? But are we really still supposed to be in survival mode after all this time or have we moved on to some kind of weird acceptance phase? Either way, we don't love it. Let's just have a snack and watch some trash TV instead?

Ep. 361: Can Kids Predict The Future? Plus, Author Chanda Austin

EBiz is joined by guest co-host Rebecca Blum this week to talk about how our children see the future. What do our kids think adulthood will be like? We revisit the games we played as kids that fed our fantasies of life as grown ups. If life turned out like the game MASH, then we would all be married to our childhood crushes and live in mansions. Do we crush are children’s visions of the future or let them dream? “Sure you’ll live with Mama forever. Your partner will LOVE it!" Plus, Biz is trying to lose control and we talk to Chandra Austin about her new children's book, Qiana's Braids.

Ep. 359: How Do I Talk To My Kids About That with Anastasia Higginbotham

EBiz is joined by author and activist Anastasia Higginbotham to talk about how to discuss deeply uncomfortable topics with our kids. Would you rather try to get your toddler to wear mittens or would you rather talk with your kid about death? Let's be honest, both are difficult things to do, but one may be the real parenting job. Anastasia’s books cover topics like death, sex and whiteness and we cannot recommend them enough. Plus, Biz is a steely ship and we are all still doing a good job.

Ep. 357: Boredom. Plus, Renee Colvert is Back!

EBiz is joined by Renee Colvert, from Can I Pet Your Dog? We start the show off and end with a reflection on the difficult circumstances we find ourselves in from the continued threat of the pandemic to the centuries long threat of injustice towards people of color. As parent, we are on the front lines to teach our children to understand the issues around racism, privilege, and history. We also talk about boredom. "I'm bored!" is something we are hearing 8 or 9 times a day with all this time stuck at home. Whether it's our kids or our dogs, what does boredom look like and how does it make us feel? The internet has a lot of mixed messages for us on boredom, per usual! Plus, Biz has summer plans and Renee is on the move!
